    just got n1 today, but the screen wont turn on

    so i finally took the plunge and got n1 after using my iphone 2g on tmobile for almost 3yrs. waited at home for fedex, but somehow the delivery guy just left without even a doortag. after finally got my hands on the phone after 45min drive to the fedex sorting center, i opened it in my car, inserted the battery, powered it on. everything was great. when i got back home, the screen wont light up, so i assumed the battery is probably dead. i charged it for at least 3 hrs, now the screen still wont turn on. however, u see the background light and a bunch of pixels

    does anyone have any idea what is going on?

    Try taken the battery out and putting it back. That's what I did when my screen would not come back on.

    You have 5 screens, sounds like you are on a screen with nothing on it. Try scrolling. Does it have the app drawer icon showing. If so grab some app icons and go to work.

    it's not one of the screens. the touch sensitive buttons on the bottom are all unresponsive, and you cant see the top bar.

    i called google and htc, getting a refund now. just glad i didnt get a used one from ebay right now

    As with any piece of electronics, there will be bad ones in the manufacturing process. I wouldn't let this scare you away from the phone or platform. I think this was just a fluke thing.
